Found Photographs

I have a collection of workwear and theatrical photographs I've picked up over the years in junk shops and markets, I thought I'd start sharing them.

The top picture is a postcard dated 1st Feb 1908, it reads -
'The group on the obverse played 'The Bobby's Courtship'. The gentleman with the beard apologizes for not weariing shoes.'
So that one isn't workwear but costume - a double whammy.

The girls at the bottom are munitions factory workers, printed in Coventry it reads -
'From your sister Florrie, to Gladys.'
